Draught at Barrelhouse Flats. Poured very dark brown with a thin white foam. Aroma of funky scotch. Off-putting soapy taste very bitter. Made me shudder.

Bottle from Beer Navigator. Dark brown body with thin, oaky head. Nose is sweet, malts, caramel, oak. Taste is quite strong, of malts, caramel, raisins, toasty timber, plums, and sweet vanilla, chocolate even. Goes down very well. Quite enjoy this.

PotjeBier (1437) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home (no indication as to what barrel was used). Very dark color. Small beige head, with a thin layer retention. Aromaís: peat, lots of iodine, medicinal, some roast. Flavor is moderate to full sweet with a fairly strong bitterness. Alcohol feel is not too strong. Carbonation is quite low, giving this a soft, velvetty mouthfeel. Long finish with iodinde, earthy bitterness and ash. Harsh flavors, but they somehow blend very well.

MarcoDL (1545) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2013
Amazing beer. Strong RIS, yet it is quite hoppy. The subtle Isley notes give the beer extra depth.

_angst_ (2371) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours very dark reddish brown with a small bubbly beige head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is malty, floral and tiny fruity with roasted malts, pine needles, resinous wood, cereal, caramel, grapefruit juice, celery, watered down coffee, alcohol and hints of black pepper corns. Taste is bitter and malty with roasted malts, stale grapefruit juice, pine needles, resinous wood, silage, cedar, watered down coffee, alcohol, cocoa powder, moist soil, peat, overripe tropical fruits, oatmeal cookies and hints of pepper corns. Mouthfeel is astringent, oily bitter and medium to full bodied. finish is bitter and malty with roasted malts, grapefruit rinds, banana bread, lemon zest, silage, watered down coffee, cedar and peat. Weird and not my cup of tea...

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 22, 2013
Black colour, cream head. Aroma of whisky, ash, peat, hops, coffee, chocolate, Islay. Quite bitter flavour, coffee, roasted malts, Islay whisky, peat, ash, cacao, hops notes. Finish liquorice, roasted malts, ash, peat. Great brew, the Islay barrel aging really gives it a great finish. This beer makes me happy.

worldbeertaste (1550) - AUSTRIA - NOV 19, 2013
Deep dark brown with a faint red tint when tilted with a thick, lacy, tan, head that settles to a nice thin frothy film. Smells of peat, roasted malt, lots of liquorish, iodine or ammonia, chocolate, mocha and burnt wood. A bit medicinal. Full oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes of sweet berries and deep malt at the start and finishes with a burnt, peat, smoky, earthy, roasted finish. Like the smell, the taste hits of a medicinal quality that is sort of in competition with a peat whiskey taste. You can feel the barrel agedness of the peated whiskey come out. Strange I canít really taste much of the TIPA.
